Stress Less This Holiday Season

The most wonderful time of the year can also be the most stressful. We’re here to help.

Stress Less This Holiday Season

Hosting the family for dinner, shopping for gifts, attending party after party, and spending time with the people you love … it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be one of the busiest. Balancing work, family, and household duties with holiday fun from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve can be overwhelming, but don’t let that put a damper on your sense of joy. Make the most of every magical moment with these holiday help tips.

Practice mindfulness. If you need help shifting your mindset, keep a gratitude journal and write down one thing you’re grateful for each day or try meditating or volunteering for a cause you care about. Shifting your focus from gifts and parties to caring for yourself and others will help you feel more fulfilled well past the holidays.

Prioritize what brings you joy. It’s easy to take on too much during the holiday season: baking cookies for your child’s school fundraiser, getting everything done at work so you can enjoy a few days off, decorating the house, snapping family pics, helping a friend throw a big party, or hosting out-of-town guests … the list can seem endless, but it’s OK to prioritize the things that bring you joy and say no to the things that don’t.

Try our Stress Less formula. We created Stress Less™ for busy people just like you. Take it alongside your daily Alive!™ multivitamin to help manage everyday stress thanks to ashwagandha and calming lavender essential oil.* It’s a great stocking stuffer for your go-getting friends too — the gift of relaxation is one of the most precious gifts you can give!

Get your eight hours. A quality night of sleep makes for a better tomorrow, and a more rested, happier you. The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion reports that a full night of sleep may help you think more clearly, reduce stress and improve your mood, remain at a healthy weight, and even reduce the risk of health problems like heart disease and diabetes.

Enjoy the outdoors and move your body. Remember how excited you were to play in the snow as a kid? Channel that childhood fun as an adult and get outside, whether it’s a walk around the block with your dog, sledding with your kids, or going for a hike. The American Heart Association discusses studies that have shown that spending time outside can even help calm your senses.

Support your energy.* Alive! Fatigue Fighter™ helps your body fight fatigue and supports physical energy. It’s formulated with a full B-vitamin complex to help convert food into cellular energy, awakening peppermint essential oil, and adaptogenic Rhodiola extract.*
